AUD(AKG-460's)>DAT>CDR; Seeded to etree by Tim W
Subject: Compton Terrace
Subject: Already mentioned in reviews
The set list was good and considering the year and the decline the band was experiencing this show still rocked! I was not tripping. I had some wonderful edibles and they put me in the exact space to enjoy the show. I remember plenty of dancing, a couple of great covers and a decent all around show. "The Weight" was an encore. Great way to end the show and send everyone along in a pensive mood. I remember particularly enjoying "Minglewood Blues", "Fire on the Mountain", "Scarlet Begonias", "All Along the Watchtower" and "One More Saturday Night" (surprisingly energetic).
I'm still so confused why this is listed as Compton Terrace! I know I was at Desert Sky Pavilion. Cardboard Zippy alluded to this in the comments/reviews years ago. If anyone else remembers the location well I'd really like to understand the why I'm so certain this was in a different place.
BTW, this was a great crowd considering it was '92!

Subject: Sweet vibes in the desert.
Bobby's guitar is especially prevalent in the mix on both of these nights, and though 12/6 may be a tad better, this isn't bad Grateful Dead. Jerry's engaged, and the soloing in the Scarlet>Fire is quite clean and bubbly.
The post drums Wheel>Watchtower is strong and the Weight encore sweetly delivered. Nothing monumental, but certainly pleasant.

"One more day
I find myself alive
beneath the ground"
As the tenth anniversary of Jerry's death comes around, these words hit bone. In the final verse of the Weight; Jerry, Phil, Vince and Bobby sang together:
"Catch a cannonball now to take me down the line
My bag is sinking low, and I do believe it's time
To get back to Miss Fanny, you know she's the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone"
God Bless the Grateful Dead. CD
